A Greenwood woman looked at the sheet of ice on the road in front of her house Tuesday and decided there was no way she was going to try to get to work in Shelbyville.
Royanna Dougherty called off work before even trying to get out on the roads. She’s thankful her boss is considerate of her commute and her safety, so she doesn’t have to worry about getting into trouble for not showing up. But Dougherty knows not every worker is as lucky and was concerned about others who had to travel or at least tried to.
She thinks the county made the decision to reduce travel restrictions too early, which put drivers at risk for accidents.
